Texas French Toast

I have already posted a recipe for French toast. This one uses Texas toast slices for the bread. It is made slightly different then my previous post. Ingredients: 3 eggs 4 slices of Texas toast 1/4 cup half and half 1 teaspoon vanilla extract  cinnamon for dusting your favorite topping Begin by whisking the eggs and half and half. When well mixed, add the vanilla extract. Place the bread in a toaster oven for about a minute. You don't want to toast it, just slightly dry it out. This will help it hold together. Add the bread on slice at a time, coating both sides. Lightly dust your dredged bread with cinnamon. Preheat griddle for several minutes. The pan is ready when a drop of water dances on the surface. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and continue with the rest of the slices.  Add for favorite toppings and enjoy.

Butternut Squash Lasagna

The holidays are a difficult time if you are dieting. My wife saw a recipe for a low-carb lasagna in a magazine, and asked me to make it. I read it and thought, it just wasn't lasagna. I went through the pantry looking for ingredients that would create a healthy and delicious meal. There are two ways to make the noodles. You can slice them by hand, or you can do it the way I do, with a vegetable sheet cutter on my KitchenAid mixer. Once you get the hang of using the sheeter, it's a breeze to slice long ribbons of vegetables that can be sliced to your desired length. Ingredients: 8 to 12 sheets or slices of butternut squash 2 cups fresh spinach 1 can spaghetti sauce 1 can diced tomatoes 4 cups fat free mozzarella shredded cheese 1 pound ground turkey breast 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1 teaspoon minced garlic 1/2 cup diced black olives 1 cup finely diced butternut squash 1 teaspoon olive oil cooking spray  Begin by cutting your "noodles&qu
